Two Sixth Form pupils from Bromsgrove School have had their Global Sustainable Development essays shortlisted by the University of Warwick.
Candidates were invited to submit an essay of 1500-2000 words on one of the following titles:
- As the negotiations around Brexit are ongoing, what issues of Sustainable Development should our leaders be concerned with?
- “The expression ‘Think Global Act Local’ offers the best guidance to achieving Global Sustainable Development”. Discuss.
- To what extent is Global Sustainable Development primarily about how we manage environmental resources?
The winners of the competition receive a £50 cash prize and the opportunity to attend a workshop at the university on 30th June.
Emily Gill, Teacher of Geography at Bromsgrove said “Sustainability is a major challenge in the world in which we live. Studying Geography enables our pupils to become aware of the global issues that need to be addressed and how we can mitigate against them. The Geography department is impressed with the high quality of Emily and Ellie’s essays and the additional research and reading that both have undertaken. It has demonstrated their enthusiasm and dedication for the subject. They both intend to read Geography at university.”
